This event has ended.

Carmen Cicero and Alan Steele represent polar opposites on the spectrum of art movements which define the Bowery as an incubator for artists since the 1950s.

This is the first exhibition in a series focused on Contemporary artists living and working on the Bowery in New York City, curated by James Cavello as part of the core gallery program.

Cicero’s intense Figurative Expressionism reflects both personal experiences and the raw emotion of downtown streets, while Steele’s Geometric Abstraction with its clean lines and its programmatic non-objectiveness is analytical, meditative and purposefully removed from the neighborhood hum. Exhibited together for the first time, the two artists manifest the constant dialectic of the two opposing forces of Apollonian and Dionysian that shape the downtown art scene. Both artists on view represent the past, the present and the future of the Bowery Arts District, as they continue to work from their longtime studios.
